Megastar Chiranjeevi’s Sye Raa is doing well in Telugu markets but failed in other languages. The movie is a massive disaster in Hindi in particular. If we look at the reasons behind the failure, some suspect if that is the case of Telugu bias of the Hindi audience. To date, Telugu people do not have an identity in the North and we are called Madrasis.
So, they may have ignored Sye Raa which is based on the story of two freedom fighters from the Telugu land. However, Rajamouli has suspected this earlier itself. RRR is a fictitious story based on two Legendary Freedom Fighters – Alluri Seetha Ramaraju and Komaram Bheem. Ram Charan will play Alluri while NTR will play the Telangana Warrior. The story happens when they meet in Delhi before they start their freedom struggle. So, there should be no nativity issue in RRR due to the Delhi backdrop.
